Man peed way out of avalanche
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 05:33 PM by Earth_First
Please excuse the crude nature of the title/story. However I find this story absolutely extraordinary!

Man peed way out of avalanche

A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.

Rescue teams found Richard Kral drunk and staggering along a mountain path four days after his Audi car was buried in the Slovak Tatra mountains

He had 60 half-litre bottles of beer in his car as he was going on holiday, and after cracking one open to think about the problem he realised he could urinate on the snow to melt it, local media reported.

Parts of Europe have this week been hit by the heaviest snowfalls since 1941, with some places registering more than ten feet of snow in 24 hours.

7. But the beer wouldn't have been 98.6 degrees warm
which leads me to wonder:

Maybe humans were put here to be beer-heating devices?

8. no
he heated the beer to 98.6 - pouring it would have been less effective, the beer alone wouldnt be as warm
